Toby Gray
Artist | Professional | Varied
United States
From my website (because I'm feeling too lazy to write something new): Born in 1977 (after his overdue mother went to see the circus) and raised in Raynham, MA, Toby Gray is a stay-at-home father of 3 boys, a husband, an artist, a practitioner of Shotokan Karate (since 1995), an exercise geek, a Ninja Warrior, an Eagle Scout, a lover of hiking and camping and kayaking, a snowboarder, a wood-working enthusiast, a comic book fan, an introvert, at one time a pure-bred cat breeder, and a dreamer. He has been wearing shorts year-round (in MA and NH, not some Nancy warm locale) since 1991 (with a handful of exceptions, like brief job requirements and snowboarding) all because of a bet gone awry. He also really likes monkeys and squids.

You can help support Toby and his brain by visiting his Etsy store, www.etsy.com/shop/PlungerMonke… and decorating your torso with the stuff from his brain!

Mother's Day Card 2019
Another year, another Mother's Day card for my awesome wife! It's always a challenge to come up with a new image every year. I try to reference something significant we've done, which is usually related to hiking, skiing, etc. (or having another kid, getting a dog...), which means I often turn to family pictures I've taken from our adventures. This helps me out with "aging" the caricatures of our kids/dragons, but I'm also able to capture some unique locations we've been to, which add a little more meaning to the cards every year. I used a variety of inking pens for the line work (mostly Mangaka) and Copic markers for the grey tones. It's a fun little annual project. If you want to see the other cards from throughout the years, go check out the recent blog post on www.tobys-brain.com

Tiger Eye EARTH
New Shirt Friday! Here's the latest shirt available on my Etsy shop at www.etsy.com/listing/687941106… This was supposed to be a simple tweak of some old art into a shirt, but for every little tweak I made I spotted a dozen more things I wanted to improve, so I scrapped it and started from scratch, using the old art as inspiration. This is part of the Elemental line of shirts I'm working on that depict aspects of nature or elements (earth, fire, air, etc). Go decorate your torso and encourage everyone you know to do the same, because reasons.

PMD Riding Purple Cat
I originally drew this image for my youngest son's elementary school yearbook. They allowed parents to submit something to go into print to wish your kid well as they headed off to fifth grade. I started this tradition with my oldest son, but this is probably my best of the three. I decided I had to turn it into a shirt, so, I splashed in some color, changed the wording on Plunger Monkey's sign to appeal to a broader audience than just my son, and here it is. It's available in purple and black (the shirt color, not the cat color. My youngest is obsessed with purple, as well as cats).

Parkour Bobcat LOGO
New shirt available at my Etsy store, inspired by the crazy, now viral, video I captured a of a bobcat demonstrating some parkour skills to nab a squirrel in my back yard. 28% of my profits on these shirts go right to The Big Cat Rescue to help protect wild cats worldwide.

10 Things (One Hen, Two Ducks)
My debut children's book as arrived! It's been a long time coming, but I finally jumped through all the business, legal, and administrative hoops to set myself up as an LLC with a few Imprints so I can conduct my art business in a more official manner. I first learned this tongue twister as a scout, and revived it once I became an adult leader for my own kids in scouts (I'm currently a scoutmaster).
